Gingerbread house project I

Niks and Naks (and others) liked the gingerbread house last year so much that this year they want to build a bigger one, a real moomin house.

Niks: Here is the box that holds the forms for the house.

Naks: It will be a big one, 36 cm tall!

Niks: The recipe is printed on the back of the box. Do we have all the ingredients?

Naks: I believe we do...

It takes some time to make the dough as the syrup, sugar, butter and spices must be cooked first and then cooled before other ingredients can be added. But finally the dough is ready.

Naks: Does it taste good?

Niks: Yes, but it is rather mild, not very spicy.

Naks: It will do, is it hard enough?

Niks: Not yet. It must sit in the fridge overnight. Tomorrow we can see if it will work or if we must add more flour.

Naks: This is a fun project.

Niks: Definitely. I can't wait to see the finished house.

Naks: I can't wait to get to the point when we can start nibbling at the house.

Niks: Unfortunately that won't happen until after Christmas. Then it will be demolition time!

Naks: It will be the best part of the whole project!
